Riglos Gran Corte 2011
This deeply colored wine is intensely fragrant, with aromas of blackberries, cassis, plum and whiffs of mocha, sage and discreet oak. These notes are repeated on the palate, which is both plush and elegant. The Cabernet Sauvignon provides structure and linearity, the Malbec brings in seductive heft and texture and the Cabernet Franc adds touches of complexity and spiciness, giving an overall impression of breadth without heaviness. The finish is long and exotic, lingering on notes of spice and black fruit.
